How Cold Laser Therapy Works in your Pet
Designed for pets that are and dealing with chronic pain from injury, surgery, or arthritis. A veterinarian will conduct a complete exam to make sure no underlying conditions may be the cause. They create a treatment plan afterward to figure out how many sessions they will need, and for how long. It is more than likely treatment will start out twice a week, and then taper off less and less as the signs of the treatment show improvement. They need no other special preparations. No sedation. No shaving, nothing. As the laser specialist begins some form of eye protection will be applied on your pet at first, as they apply a laser wand to the needed area. The laser then penetrates through the fur and skin into the damaged tissue area.
